    As noted, wigs can be very good these days.

    The NHS may fund one, but the genuine human hair ones from a specialist maker are excellent. They withstand washing well, and I think they even look a...

    Baarle-Hertog has long fascinated me, particularly the mental concept of a counter-enclave i.e. a tiny bit of the Netherlands that sits totally surrounded by & within a bit of Belgium, with that bit...

    I had a good look over a Furlan Marri, and it was pretty impressive, especially for the price point. Nicely formed hand set, lovely domed sapphire crystal, dial with quite a bit of character,...

    I’m re-watching ‘The Wire’ and binged four episodes the night before I woke to news of his passing, so this feels particularly impactful right now.

    I’m also reading ‘All The Pieces Matter’, a book...

    Whilst I'm not a Rolling Stones fanatic, I was genuinely sad to hear of his passing.

    He always struck me as both the 'coolest' and most modest member of the group, with truly impeccable style - a...

    Similar to a modern Rolex Oyster bracelet, but better finished and more comfortable.

    Superb series, easily top 5 for me with top-notch writing, acting, directing & set/costume design.

    The best shows - like Mad Men, The Sopranos & The Wire - are eminently enjoyable on a surface...

    Well played, it is indeed very apt. And who doesn’t enjoy a Little Carmine quote?!

    As I’m sure you know, there’s an interesting theory that Little Carmine wasn’t quite as thick as he let on,...

    Really looking forward to this.

    The soundtrack should also be excellent.

    They appear to have cast it very well - Bernthal, Stoll & Famigia match the characters of Johnny Boy, Junior & Livia...

    Great watch.

    Love the simple, handsome design - just perfect.

    Well made, like any Tudor I’ve worn.

    It’s a watch forum cliche to hate the snowflake hour hand, but I think it’s great:...

    I used to dislike diamond dial markers, thinking them a bit flashy & vulgar.

    However, of late I’ve found myself quite liking them. Most appealingly on a two-tone vintage DateJust. Both the...

    So, I said I wanted low-key, under the radar.

    Yes, the engine bay was rather tightly packed and user unfriendly in layout. Even changing a battery was a bit of a faff, needing a socket extension bar etc.

    The white is beautiful, but for me the silver (or champagne, as I call it) dial is preferable.
